Format: Paperback
Although the training methodology is competely valid, It does not mention that it is based on the same philosophy as HIT training. 1 Set to failure per muscle group in the (6-8) rep range spaced apart from 96-120 hrs based on Mike Mentzer. Trainer X reccomends to start with a week of rest between sets. I've done HIT before as in the HIT book authored by Mr. Mentzer and it worked wonderfully. However I noticed my gains halting. The immediate HIT solution is that you are NOT giving yourself enough recovery time and you must EXTEND the recovery period. So that is what I did and I ended up lifting LESS than before. Perhaps there is a very SMALL window when my strength would have allowed MORE weight and blew it? I don't know. But I seem to be getting GREAT results with FULL body training outlined in HUGE IN A HURRY. In that book it explains the failures of the HIT methodology. Although I remain a skeptic, I do believe that others can utilize HIT and get some results consistently. Its just that my body responds to a full body approach.

Smokin' hot guns is a great read and excellent introduction to weight training. I didn't know much about starting a program prior to reading, and this book does a good job of not just giving a list of exercises but explaining when and why to do each. It approaches the process of getting into a routine from all angles, and provided me with all the background information and science without losing me in endless details and technical jargon. The program is setup just as advertised, taking next to no time to complete, and so far I am seeing results far better than any of my attempts at getting fit in the past. Not sure why those negative reviews are here, the book does a good job of bringing together all the information you need and setting you up with a great workout routine, the easy-to-digest content and explanations are better than any other book I've read and made the purchase well worth it for me. I think everyone regardless of experience level will gain something from the book.

Recommended to anyone looking to get their guns in the new year!

Just a warning guys, although the arm routine here is pretty decent, the real reason your arms will grow is because if all the rest your giving them after the workout, you could do a fairly basic arm routine and with a week rest your arms will grow. The biggest mistake guys make in the gym in not enough recovery time. Weightlifting was the one discipline in life that shunt lazy helped me tremendously, guys would say, you work out half the time I do, come in half the days if the week that I do and your twice my size, what gives? Recovery recovery recovery. Your muscles grow outside the gym, not inside the gym. Anyway I digress, this book is a BAD IDEA guys, you will look absolutely silly. You cannot have big guns and then tiny little shoulders and no chest, you would look terribly misshapped and plain silly. Don't follow this plan your arms will grow but nothing else will you will be embarrassed to take your shirt off because of how stupid you will look. Take it from someone who has been around the gym for decades a good full body workout program three times a week 45 minutes each time will get you nice results with a good overall look, DO NOT JUST WORK ARMS YOU WILL LOOK STUPID!

Trainer X gives you the no BS guide to getting great looking guns
He blows the lid off of all these so called personal trainers and you can get better results by buying this book than paying $50+ an hour for help at the gym.
I have read loads of body building mags and have never seen what Trainer X tells you to do.
This even comes with an 8 week workout guide with pictures so that alone is worth the price of this book
Great value and great looking guns.

I got hooked on this book for the title "one workout a week". I am a busy man with lots of appointments everyday. I couldn't even spare an hour a day going to gym. I would like to see if this book could bring help to me.

This book goes into very details of weight training. It tells you how to do various exercises and why in a convincing way. The idea is that you don't need quantity, quality matters. As long as you follow the most efficient way to workout, you can see the progress rapidly. The routine Trainer X provides is one of this kind, very powerful and effective, it fits my busy schedule and should fit most busy people's. There is no BS, everything is straight to the point.

If you have "better body shape" or "stronger arms" or the like on your list of new year resolutions, it is time to pick up this book. Turn the commonly broken resolution into an achievement!

Solid methodology and workout routines; muscle reps that have been tested; clear concise language; straight talking no BS guide. What more can I say? Trainer X gives a very detailed plan on how to achieve, you know, muscles! It will also help you discover what your own muscle tolerance is. All in all, a decent book!
